HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE!
…for those in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway. If you live in an area that gets snow or will get snow, or if you have every experienced snow or read about or seen snow, or if you like snow or only like to view snow from a distance, (who am I kidding? If you are anyone!), then you just might appreciate this adorable book:
A squirrel and a chipmunk find a snowman in the woods and wonder what the strange objects stuck in the pile of snow could be. They disassemble the snowman, piece by piece, trying out each object (the hat could be a tall rowboat! The buttons, small shields!) and then figure out how all the pieces work together. Readers will enjoy how the woodland creatures re-imagine how the snowman props could be used for their purpose and will delight in the surprise ending (that will inspire even more imagination). This book has a snowman, squirrel, rabbit, chipmunk, bird, owl, mole, party, and illustrated endpapers, all adorably drawn by Dana Wulfekotte. Kevin Tseng’s spare text tell a story that is both clever and sweet and that inspires creativity and imagination. A really cute read!
